This morning on “The Today Show,” Matt Lauer came back from a commercial break and commented on the gorgeous sunshine: “We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza.” Matt’s awkward word choice proved too tempting for guest Chris Rock — check out the video to see his response. The best part? Elmo (yes, the Muppet) is there too. [TMZ]

Director Of “My Nappy Roots” Sues Chris Rock Over “Good Hair”


Chris Rock‘s “Good Hair” hasn’t even come out yet, and he’s already being sued. Filmmaker Regina Kimbell filed the suit, claiming that the flick infringes on the copyright for her award-winning documentary, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage,” which she maybe screened for Chris Rock two years ago. The lawsuit claims that there are major similarities between the two films, including the inspiration (their daughters) and the interviews with medical pros, celebs and comedians. Plus, both filmmakers go to hair relaxer manufacturing plants and touch on India’s involvement in providing hair for weaves. Even the trailers for both films are pretty similar—just compare the “My Nappy Roots” preview above to the “Good Hair” one after the jump. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Chris Rock On Polanski: “It’s Rape!”


I’ve been getting increasingly pissy about the lack of celebrities speaking out against Roman Polanski compared to those — like Whoopi Goldberg — who’ve been making lame excuses for him raping a 13-year-old girl and evading jail time. But not Chris Rock! The comic was on “Jay Leno” last night, promoting his new movie, “Good Hair,” and he let his mouth run on the subject. Clip above! Keep reading »

“Good Hair” Documentary Looks Promising

We were really intrigued by “Good Hair,” Chris Rock‘s documentary that explores the idea of “good hair” in black culture, when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Now that the trailer has been released we’re even more excited, because it delves into an aspect of black culture that isn’t often discussed outside the black community — that is unless someone stands to profit by making products for black hair. Although Chris stays true to his comedic roots, “Good Hair” doesn’t appear to be any less insightful or serious. Keep reading »

Chris Rock Knows “Good Hair”

The subject of “good hair” wasn’t given much attention in my family growing up. Hair was as good as you made it and it didn’t matter whether your hair was naturally straight or softly curly. Grooming hair, however, was a big topic and, at times, an all day affair. I remember having my hair straightened with a pressing comb the night before school pictures; and getting it cornrowed in the summer so swimming could be fun rather than a hassle; and I also remember the irreparable damage caused by a monthly relaxer. When I grew out my natural hair I felt so free and empowered. And the first time I felt the wind blowing my short locks I couldn’t help feeling excited. I can mark every major period in my life with the hairstyle I was rocking at the time. Hair for me and probably every black woman on this planet has been a major part of life, which is why I’m excited to see Chris Rock’s “Good Hair,” which just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
